Paper Playtime #38 Animal Print

Hey. y'all!!!  First off,  Happy Valentine's Day!  It's not really a day that I make too much of but just didn't want you to think that I forgot.  Hee hee!!

Today your mission if you chose to accept it is to make a project using an animal print and link it here at Paper Playtime.  My personal stash of cards is getting very low so I made a card for this challenge.  But I wanted it to be a challenge so I tried to find a card fold that I had never used before and came up with one called a gatefold card.  Pretty simple really.  You take a piece of 8 1/2" X 4 1/4" card stock and score it at 2 1/8" and again at 6 3/8" to form "gates".  Add some decorative layers and viola, a cute new card.

The card stock is all from Recollections including the animal print.  It is from their new collection of printed card stock called appropriately, Animal Print.  The flower is cut at 2 1/4" from the Forever Young Cricut cartridge.  The pink animal print ribbon is from Michaels. 

Thanks for visiting today.  Please come over and join us at Paper Playtime and show us how you use your animal print.
